The leaves are beginning to change colors, college football is back, and the yard is starting to look a little browner. This must mean that the fall season is upon us! With all the fun cool weather activities going on, it can be easy to overlook your changing landscape. A trailer is a tool you need to have the optimal amount of fun and productivity in this new season. This vehicle can tow around your yard tools, your grill to tailgate with your buddies, and your favorite people on a hayride! There are so many possibilities when it comes to owning a trailer. Here are three fun ways to utilize a trailer this fall.

1. Fall Tailgating

What’s almost as fun as watching your favorite team in a stadium? Tailgating before the game! There is nothing like sipping a cold beer and cooking burgers with people who cheer on the same team. Tailgating involves a lot of preparation and work, especially if you have been deemed the “grill master.” With a name like this, you need to live up to your title. So how do you create the ultimate tailgating experience for your friends and family? Create your checklist: load up your trailer with the grill, a cooler full of food and drinks, your outdoor tent, and your chairs.

Utilizing a trailer makes this task a whole lot easier. Whether the game is in your hometown or you’re traveling to cheer on your team, a trailer will ensure your supplies stay safe during your travels. Your buddies will be amazed by the setup and your kids will be happy to have some extra room in the car. If you really want to ‘wow’ the crowd, check out this “ultimate tailgating trailer.”

2. Fall Landscaping & Gardening

The leaves may not be falling yet in Southwest Florida, but there is plenty of landscaping to do. Fall is the perfect season to start growing the vegetable garden you have always wanted! With the combination of cooler temperatures and the rainfall that happened during spring, plant roots will begin to drive deeper into the soil. Some of the most successful vegetables that grow in Florida’s fall season are broccoli, kale, collards, and lettuce.

When it comes to planting new flowers in your yard, try planting annuals and bulbs that do better in slightly cooler temperatures. That way, you can have beautiful color through the new year. But just because you live in Florida does not mean you are off the hook for raking up leaves. You will start to see leaves falling around October and November. So, you need to be prepared for what’s to come! You can use your trailer to transport your new flowers from the nursery or your raking tools as your work on your property.

3. Fall Activities

We see how trailers can be extremely practical, so now let’s explore how a trailer can be utilized for fun as well. Some of the most common fall activities include campfires, pumpkin patches, and good ole hayrides. A handy way to use the trailer is to stack up firewood and haul it to your house. This will ensure that you have firewood for the whole fall season. Gone are the days where your kids can’t have roasted marshmallows every night (they will love you for this). Or maybe your family runs a pumpkin patch during this time of year? A trailer will help you load all of the pumpkins and head to the farm to sell them.

A great way to get the family involved is stacking hay bales into the trailer, stringing some lights around it, and going for a ride through your property. It’s also a great way to get your neighbors together for a night under the stars! The memories you get to make in this season are priceless. Consider buying a trailer to make all these fall activities possible for your family.

Most Importantly: Have Fun!

Having your own trailer will make this season a breeze – and you don’t have to wait for cool weather for the fall festivities to begin! Take the time to slow down and make lasting memories with your family. Your kids or grandkids will love helping you out in the garden, getting your game day essentials ready, and decorating your trailer for a hayride.
